Fury FC 92 Main Event Breakdown

Image for Fury FC 92 Main Event Breakdown

This year, Father’s Day is a bigger sports Sunday than usual. While you have the annual mainstay known as the final round of golf’s US Open this holiday weekend and day three of the NCAA Division I Men’s College World Series on Sunday, you’ll also have spring football‘s ultimate prize up for grabs.

One week removed from The Dome at America’s Center hosting the XFL Conference Championship Game, the venue serves as the site for the UFL Championship Game between the Birmingham Stallions and San Antonio Brahmas. Make no mistake: This isn’t a time to talk about football.

A busy weekend of MMA comes to its conclusion on Sunday afternoon and evening from Houston when Imagen Venues is the setting for Fury FC 92 and the Fury FC 92 main event. All told, barring any last-minute adjustments to Sunday’s card, the final version of the show features 13 fights. Live coverage begins on the Fury FC YouTube channel with the undercard at 2:30 pm ET/ 11:30 am PT before continuing at 5:30 pm ET/ 2:30 pm PT on UFC Fight Pass.

Flyweights Go Head-To-Head Sunday

Topping the main card is a nontitle fight at 125 lbs. in the headliner. Jomar Pa-ac (7-3 MMA, 1-1 Fury FC), a veteran of Brave Combat Federation, takes on undefeated Nick Piccininni (5-0 MMA, 2-0 Fury FC), an alum of Xtreme Fight Night.

While no title is at stake on Sunday, the Fury FC 92 main event is an advertised maximum of five rounds at five minutes per round to close the show, as is customary with all Fury FC main events.

Fury FC 92 Main Event Fighter Comparison

Heading into the Fury FC 92 main event this Sunday, both fighters stand level in height at 5-foot-6. Nick Piccininni owns a three-inch reach advantage (68 inches to 65 inches) over Jomar Pa-ac.

While oddsmakers have betting odds accessible for Fury FC 92 at press time, no such odds have been made accessible for the main event. If you plan on betting on this or any other fight happening this weekend in MMA and/or combat sports, please wager responsibly.

Jomar Pa-ac Looks to Build Off of March Win

Jomar Pa-ac enters the Fury FC 92 main event on Father’s Day having posted a record of 3-2 in his last five fights dating back to early 2017. Last time out, he secured a first-round submission via guillotine choke against Shojin Miki (10-13 MMA, 0-1 Fury FC).

For the latter, the March 10 loss was his fourth of what’s now five in succession. A month later, Miki dropped his fifth straight fight by way of unanimous decision against Kyle Estrada (13-3 MMA) in United Fight League 4. As far as the Pa-ac camp is concerned, he’s alternated wins and losses in his last four contests.

He hasn’t experienced a sustained winning streak since a four-fight run between March of 2016 and March of the next year. Will he be able to keep his upward trajectory going this weekend in the Fury FC 92 main event? Tune in and find out.

Nick Piccininni with Most Important Fight of Young Career on Sunday Evening

In the other corner, Nick Piccininni has yet to lose thus far in his professional MMA career. Back in September of last year, he scored a second-round submission (arm-triangle choke) of Victor Gonzalez (5-6 MMA, 4-4 Fury FC) during Fury FC 83.

Sunday’s fight is a crucial one for Piccininni’s future in MMA. He recently talked to Austin Morales of UFC Fight Pass about his headlining spot this weekend.

“I’m shooting for the best possible thing for myself and what I’m in control in is my performance,” Piccininni mentioned. “I have to go there and perform and that’s what we’ll see. I’m just going to go out there and do what I do and try to finish these fights.”

Although this is only his sixth professional fight, this is a man whose resume has already started to fill up. Should Piccininni turn in another banner performance on Father’s Day, he could find himself on the short track to a UFC contract.

Analysis, Film Study, and Prediction

This is another classic strength vs. strength affair in the Fury FC 92 main event on Sunday. Both men have excellent ground games, with Piccininni a wrestler by trade.

Pa-ac Can Work Quickly

Statistically speaking, Jordan Pa-ac has recorded three of his seven career victories by way of submission. When it happens, it can be a sight to behold, as it was on March 10 vs. Shojin Miki. Upon Pa-ac landing a body shot, he and Miki went into the clinch.

From there, he drove Miki to the ground and rolled into mount, applying the torque on a high-elbow guillotine choke to get Miki to tap out in a minute and seven seconds. If Jomar Pa-ac can put Nick Piccininni on the mat, he’ll be golden in the Fury FC 93 main event.

Piccininni Also Adept on the Ground

In the other corner, given that Oklahoma State alum Nick Piccininni has a wrestling background, Sunday’s main event is going to be a race to see who gets his opponent on the mat first. He’s got an impressive ground game in his own right.

It was on display against Freddie Rodriguez in late 2022. After Rodriguez dropped Piccininni, he stuffed a subsequent effort. Later on in the round, he took Rodriguez down and landed some ground and pound shots to soften him up from the full mount, something that proved fruitful as he squeezed on an arm-triangle choke for the win.

If Nick Piccininni beats Jomar Pa-ac to the takedown, Dana White could be leaving him a voicemail on Monday morning.

Final Thoughts

Even though this one won’t be for a title on Sunday, the Fury FC 92 main event should be a good five rounds (or less) of action. If you’re not interested in the UFL Championship, tune in for the fight.

Prediction: Nick Piccininni by First-Round Submission.
